Good job Bro!

I'll be doing my first few runs in a couple weeks. Saving the tire for one more good ride, then I'll go give it hell and see what I can do.

What was your tire pressure if you don't mind?

Default 34-36 psi worked great for me.

If the pressure is to low it will come down on your speed.....don´t go to low.

Nope, I'll start off whith my normal 32.5psi and see if it hooks up. They do a terrible job maintaining the track tho so I may have to drop it a pound or so. Hopefully not.
You have yours set up for the line huh? If not and that's free-throttle...your pritty Dam good! Rite to 6,000 (steady), then no more than 8,000 while pretty much dumpin that clutch...very, very hard to do!
I'm guessing 6-8,000 rpms is max before you over-power it huh?

It´s just free throttle, i´ve never tried to lunch the bike over 6000rpm, i´m going to try it next summer, but i think it will be much harder to keep it down. I have to get better in the 60ft (c.a. 1.8 sek), just haven´t found the right way to do it. I´ve only raced at the dragstrip two times and the season is over here in Iceland now. So i have to wait until next summer to get better.

Wow...that's awesome. I must have watched your video 200 times already. Just love the sound of it I guess.
I'm going Friday to make a few runs. Starting to twitch ah little thinking I may pull a 90 right into the barriers.

I've done one good launch in front of the house. About 6,000, let that clutch out and about 20-25ft out the front came up about a foot and managed to carry it to redline. It felt great and never spun, so I'm hopeing I can repeat at the strip.

I'll try to borrow my Buds GoPro so I can post it up.
Thanks for the vid Bro!
